Rochdale Riverside Monthly Updates

The programme is subject to change and we will add more information as it becomes available. The scheme is due to complete in 2020.

Please keep calling back for regular updates.

Work on the Rochdale Riverside retail & leisure development continues to make good progress. A substantial part of the steel work for the cinema block has been completed and remediation & groundwork's continue across the eastern part of the site.

The new road and traffic signals from John Street into the new Rochdale Riverside development have opened. The new road will be called ‘New Baillie Street’ and will also provide access to a new service yard in the Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre.

Now the new road is open Milton Street (which links Penn Street to Smith Street) will close permanently and access to Mecca Bingo and Number 1 Riverside will be via Smith Street only.

Temporary access has been created in front of the Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre for service vehicles travelling along Yorkshire Street and Baillie Street. This access will be restricted to one way heading out towards the new road and limited to between the hours of 6pm and 10am. This temporary access will remain in place until early next year when Constantine Road will re-open to traffic. These new access arrangements are shown on the plan below.
